Prolotherapy is a special therapy technique used to correct hypermobilities or sloppy joints. Ligaments around the loose joint are injected with an irritant (usually sugar water or ozone gas) causing it to swell and scar down. Because scar tissue is stronger than the original tissue the joint becomes more firmly held together. Typical protocols require a series of injections every other week for 8 weeks. A physical therapist’s role in prolotherapy is to position the loose joint and help surrounding joints to move so that it heals properly. Manual Solutions has been successfully assisting with prolotherapy treatments for over 7 years. We have partnered with several local physicians who perform the injections.
